Most SUV for the money
By DCPhill on
2009 Toyota Highlander Limited 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Bought to replace 2000 Mercedes ML320. Little bit roomier, more like a station wagon. Cost about same as Mercedes did in 2000. Very comfortable and quiet, handles well. Ergonomics of controls are strange, i.e. GPS/Bluetooth/Radio controls difficult to sort out. So far no regrets.
Cargo space is just right for carting two dog crates plus 3 passengers. Keyless entry and start system. Electric lift gate and rear hatch in lift gate.
Turning radius not as good as Mercedes. I can't make a U-turn on my street like I used to. Dash board control ergonomics seem illogical.
